Video: Google Play store, Google Apps, Google Now ported to Nokia X.

Nokia X GappWe reported about porting of Nokia Store and Nokia MixRadio from Nokia X to other Android devices. Now, since Nokia X has a Android core (AOSP), so Google Play Store and related Google apps & services like Google Maps are absent by default.

But, some devs at XDA-Forum have successfully ported Google Play Store, Google Maps, other Google apps and even Google Now launcher to Nokia X. You can watch the removed “Google” stuff in action on Nokia X.

    Here’s an interesting tidbit – Nokia is discouraging developers from making Windows Phone style apps for the Nokia X. They say users “might consider the Windows Phone panoramic view as uneffective since it does not work satisfyingly in landscape orientation.”

    So essentially, the experience will be full Android outside of the home and lock screens.

    Nokia’s Linux developers don’t have the same views as Stephen Elop on Windows Phone, obviously.
